This is one of the greatest weeks that I am having since being diagnosed with leukemia. Up until now, I have been unable to visit with my granddaughters that live in another state. I was unable to be at the birth of my last grandson because I was sick and have not been able to travel to visit them. But this week things have changed!
My daughter in law drove the kids to Palm Desert, about two hours from my home and I finally got to hold my new grandson. He is now five weeks old. As soon as I had him in my arms and started talking to him he began to smile and coo; it was the sweetest thing ever. There is nothing like holding a new baby in your arms; he is just so beautiful.
|Yes, we made them!|
My daughter and grandson came up last night to join in the fun, so I have given up trying to keep any semblance of order in the house. As long as no one trips and falls, and we can still find shoes and hair bands, life shall remain chaotic until the merriment ends. My only longing is for my third granddaughter that didn’t get to make the trip; she is two and doesn’t “like” long car rides! I will have to plan a special time to have just her.
Going to bed early and maybe watching a movie in the afternoon will hopefully keep my energy level high enough to make the two hour drive back to the desert, to hand off my precious girls to their grandfather so that he can return them, safely back home, to their family. What a wonderful week I am having!
